Jim Clark was one of the greatest world champions that motor racing has ever seen. Born in Scotland, he won the world championship in 1963 and 1965 and the Indianapolis 500 in the same year and at the time of his death had won more Grand Prix races and more pole positions than any other driver. His drive in the 1967 Italian Grand Prix at Monza is regarded as one of the greatest drives ever. Driving only for the Lotus team in Formula 1 Clark had a particularly close relationship with its founder and owner, Colin Chapman until his death at the Hockenheimring in 1968. His story is told here by the curator of the museum dedicated to his extraordinary exploits.
